Remember Win 3.1

So you are gladly clicking away at desktop icons and changing themes. Complaining about your OS or comparing the speed and cosmetics against another.

Well not me, I tend to use only Windows XP and a bit of Linux. But who remembers where this race for the ultimate GUI operating system started? Long before Windows 7 even XP there was another…yes an ancient one called Windows 3.1…

Can you still remember what it looks like or how it operated? No…. then you are in luck. Someone spent some time he’ll never get back to write an emulator…that’s right, a Windows 3.1 emulator. And it is web based. No virtual machine needed.

Here is a screenshot:

WinMobile Geekiness and More Adventures

iPhone has its fancy rouch screens and iTunes…Blackberry I’m told, has features unimaginable to the common win mobile user. That may all be true, but I found this little application on the net that I’ll probably be using a lot more.

It is called MyMobiler.

It is basically a “remote desktop” to you windows mobile phone. Here is a screenshot of my phone:

You  can pretty much do everything with the phone that you would normally do. Some of the features includes mapping the keyboard to the winmobile keyboard, copy and past from your pc to mobile etc etc.

I’ve changed the theme to show that the pic above is not just a randomly downloaded pic:

Enough about that…do you still remember the guys in the pic above? no? Well that might be because I haven’t been updating the geeks’ adventures in ages. I’ve decided to start adding a few adventures again as I get time. What to expect: Bombs, gags and two world dominating gold fish.

The Adventures of T-Man, G-man and friends

The sounds of Metal and Lemmy!

So I’ve finished Brutal Legend up to 99%. I couldn’t be bothered with unlocking the last multiplayer concept art and would have to suffice with not unlocking the ultimate trophies a PS3 game has to offer : Metal God and Rock God!

But I did how ever get my hands on the Brutal Legend Soundtrack and it took me about a few seconds to upload it to the ol iPod.

That being said, I wasted more time going through some of the concept art on the internet and came across this beauty:

This was the original concept art for Eddie Riggs inspired by Lemmy Kilmister. Would the game have been the same? I mean, the kept the massive muscles, but look at him…. the “Lemmy Riggs” just looks fucking mean! Might have put a more Brutal spin on an already brutal game!
